The Mariner’s Lookout is only a short walk from the carpark (~10 minutes), but offers you rewarding views of Apollo Bay. Sit on the grass and soak in the views, you’ll be sad when you have to leave!

Over looking Apollo Bay it gives you a stunning view of the bay and surrounding area. It's a good uphill walk there even if you go part way by car (there is parking) Lots of plants and bird life on the way to add interest....More

The view from the top of a steep walk was magnificent. You can drive partway up to a small car parking area and walk the rest of the way. Not terribly suited to someone with walking difficulties but possible with help.

You can ride up to the car park area - it is a proper roadway. Then lock your bike or walk it up on the last part of the pathway (would only be perhaps 500m for last part). Sorry can't help you about other bike tracks.
